Photo 52 : Within the Frame / Pattern & Contrast – Broken Patterns

Last week, we sought patterns to bring a sense of rhythm and harmony to our photos.However, patterns on their own can feel somewhat lacking – patterns can set a scene, but may not be enough to create a point of interest to hold the viewer’s gaze. Breaking the pattern in an unexpected way can add the tension and vitality that transforms a scene from interesting to captivating.  Our attention is riveted to the object or person that disturbs the pattern, and the properties of the pattern itself can be accentuated by the interruption.

Come see all of the wonderful broken patterns this week on our collaborative site.
